Faculty Position in
Microbial Pathogenesis/Host Response
As part of ongoing expansion, the Department of Medical Microbiology
and Immunology in the School of Medicine at Creighton University invites
applications for two tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor. Investigators studying bacterial pathogenesis and host defense are
encouraged to apply. Special consideration will be given to those with a
research focus in neuropathology and/or neuroimmunology. Appointees
will be expected to conduct a vigorous independent research program,
and participate in the teaching of graduate and professional students.
Generous laboratory space with equipment, competitive start-up funding,
and ongoing support with state-of-the art core facilities will be provided.
Applicants should have a Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D. degree, postdoctoral
training and experience denoting significant research accomplishment
and scholarly promise.
Application materials, including a curriculum vitae, brief summary of
research plans, statement of teaching interests, reprints of recent publications, and three letters of recommendation should be sent to Chair
of Search Committee, Department of Medical Microbiology and
Immunology, Creighton University Medical Center, 2500 California Plaza, Omaha, NE 68178. Materials may also be sent via email to
MMIsearchcommittee@creighton.edu. Applications will be screened
immediately and will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.

Faculty Positions in
Microbiology and Immunology
Two tenure track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor or
Associate Professor are open for scientists with a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./
Ph.D. and postdoctoral research experience. Responsibilities include
teaching graduate and medical students and directing a nationally
competitive research program in the areas of microbial pathogenesis
and/or host defense mechanisms to infection. Ideal candidates will
be those who have extramural funding and whose research integrates
molecular aspects of pathogenesis with host defense mechanisms and
the immune system. The Department faculty of 16 members directs
a training program of 40 doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows
and an NIH-funded Center for Molecular and Tumor Virology staffed
with 18 interactive principal investigators in several Departments.
Both the Department and the Center are well-equipped for molecular
research and are augmented by the LSUHSC Research Core Facility
that offers BSL-3PLUS laboratories and technologies such as flow
cytometry, confocal microscopy, laser capture microdissection, DNA
array analysis, proteomics, small animal imaging, and positron emission
tomography. Information about the Department is provided at the two
websites http://www.lsuhscmicrobiology.com and http://www.lsuhsc
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, statement of research
goals and funding, and three letters of reference to: Dr. Dennis J.
O’Callaghan, Boyd Professor & Head, Department of Microbiology
and Immunology, LSU Health Sciences Center, 1501 Kings
Highway, Shreveport, LA 71130-3932.

Three Assistant Professors:
Evolutionary Developmental Biology
and Marine Biology
The Department of Biology at the flagship campus of the
University of Hawai‘i seeks three new faculty—two in
developmental biology and one in marine biology—who will
complement existing strengths of its faculty (see http://manoa.hawaii.edu/biology). Successful applicants will be expected to establish a vigorous extramurally funded research program, as well as teach
and mentor undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.
Areas of interest for the developmental biology positions include, but are not limited to, the integration
of evolutionary developmental biology with the fields of ecology, genomics, and/or epigenetics. Teaching
expectations for these positions will include undergraduate developmental biology and graduate courses
in the successful candidates’ fields of study.
For the marine biology position (pending approval), we seek applicants that use modern quantitative
approaches in fields such as genomics or experimental ecology to understand patterns of diversity or
speciation within natural populations of non-model marine organisms. Applicants with an organismal
emphasis on the biology of corals or the ecology and evolution of other commensal/symbiotic systems
are particularly encouraged, but all areas of research will be considered. Teaching expectations include
leading one of two core courses in the new Marine Biology Graduate Program ( www.hawaii.edu/
mbiograd), and contributing to our Undergraduate Program in Marine Biology. Applicants must have a
Ph.D. in biology or a related field, evidence of significant research accomplishments and a commitment
to excellence in teaching. Desirable qualifications include relevant postdoctoral experience, extramural
funding, and teaching experience.
To apply, please prepare a single PDF document that includes: a cover letter indicating how you satisfy the
minimum and desirable qualifications; statements of research and teaching experience/interests; detailed
curriculum vitae; and three representative publications. Also arrange to have three letters of reference
submitted electronically. Review of applications will begin February 14, 2014. Applications, letters of
reference and inquiries for the developmental biology positions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org,
808-956-4706. For complete job announcements, please refer to http://workatuh.hawaii.edu, Positions
#84248 and #82208. Applications, letters of reference and inquiries for the marine biology position
should be sent to email@example.com. For a complete job announcement, please refer to http:
